Hey Tucker - which progressives are mourning Bolton's firing exactly? Seems to me that anyone who falls out of favour with the regime is a so-called progressive now. In the olden days you'd just have called them degenerates, non-persons, politically incorrect, or dissidents. :tea:

Praise him who makes great weekends possible!

'Thanks Be to Donald: Lou Dobbs Wishes Viewers a Great Weekend, Praises Trump For "Making Such a Thing Possible For Us All"'
x Business host Lou Dobbs signed off his Friday show wishing viewers a “great weekend” and followed up that salutation with a rapturous encomium for President Donald Trump, whom he duly credited with “making such a thing possible for us all.”

Dobbs’ brief benediction came at the end of a show where he had also offered a hagiographic account of his recent visit to the White House, saying “there’s great sunshine beaming throughout the place” and “it’s winner and winning center.”

The Fox Business host has become one of Trump most devoted worshippers, warning that “traitors” to the president were “committing absolute suicide,” condemning Democrats — “to hell with them” — who have refused with him, and cursing as “damned idiots” any of the president’s disciples who don’t demonstrate sufficient faith in his agenda.

Facebook working to disprove the narrative of social media suppression of conservative voices.

'Doctors Say Facebook’s Decision To Take Down An Anti-Abortion Fact-Check Sets A Dangerous Precedent'
A team of doctors working with fact-checking group Health Feedback on Aug. 30 determined a video from Live Action founder Lila Rose, which falsely claimed that abortion is never medically necessary, to be inaccurate and misleading. Facebook notified people who had shared the video that it contained false information, and a link to the fact-check appeared next to the video.

That changed Wednesday after outrage from Rose and her supporters. Four Republican senators sent a letter to Facebook, accusing the company of bias against conservatives and the fact-checkers of pushing a pro-abortion agenda. Facebook then removed the fact-check while the independent International Fact-Checking Network reviews if it violated any of its principles.

Taking down the fact-check while it’s investigated is a reasonable step, one of the fact-checkers, Dr. Daniel Grossman, told BuzzFeed News in an email, but he added Rose’s video should also come down in the meantime. As of Thursday, it remained on Facebook without any indication that multiple doctors had found it to be false, based on scientific evidence and mainstream medical practices.

...

The letter sent by Republican Sens. Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, Kevin Cramer, and Mike Braun also singled out Dr. Robyn Schickler, who fact-checked the video and is a fellow with Physicians for Reproductive Health, a group that works to promote access to health care, including contraception and abortion.

“I was using my education and experience caring for thousands of women as an OB/GYN to correct some medical misinformation. Misinformation that can be incredibly harmful,” Schickler told BuzzFeed News in an email. “The facts are clear about this: abortion can be medically necessary.”

She added she’s now being harassed just for doing what she considers as part of her duty as a doctor.

“I’ve been harassed on Twitter for stating facts and called out by senators who have political agendas,” she said. “I don’t have a political agenda. I’m an advocate because it’s part of a physician’s job to advocate for the health and well-being of our patients.”

Facebook’s removal of the fact-check, a decision made after the complaints of Republican senators, prompted concerns from doctors and reproductive health experts, who said fact-checking should be led by experts, not politicians.
